12 Things You Didn't Know the Purpose of
12. Blue Pavement Markers
You might have noticed colored pavement markers on the side of the road when you’re driving. But how many people actually know its purpose? While most drivers might think these tags are used to indicate lane markings or separate lanes, different colored markers mean different things. White ones are the markers that we mainly see, but blue is a seldom color that we don’t see as often. So what does it mean? Blue markers are placed in the center of the road to make the location of fire hydrants on the sidewalk. This makes it easier for firefighters to identify where a fire hydrant is placed rather than wandering all over the road.
11. Blue Side of an Eraser
Do you remember back in grade school when you owned an eraser, and one side was blue, and the other was red? Most teachers told us the blue side’s purpose was to erase pen markings. But when most of us tried it, and it didn’t work, it left most of us frustrated! The blue side of the eraser is actually meant to erase pencil writings on hard surfaces like wood. While the red side’s purpose was to erase pencil markings on soft surfaces like paper. Now that you’ve got it straighten out, you can teach your kids the difference, so they don’t make the same mistake.
10. Plastic Lid Discs
Most people hardly pay any attention to plastic bottles, let alone the lid. But if you take the top off the bottle and look inside it, you’ll find either a white or blue plastic disc inside of the cap. If you’re careful, you can safely remove it from underneath the cap. As hard to believe as it is, this little plastic disc actually has an important job. It is a pressure seal, the soft plastic liner that acts like a membrane. Faced with pressure from the lid, it is a gas proof barrier that keeps your soda and fizzy drinks bubbly and fresh! Also found under the cap of a microbrew, It is known as an oxygen scrubber because it absorbs the oxygen, so it doesn’t affect the taste of beer or alcoholic beverages.
9. Metal strips on gas pumps
If you’ve ever pumped gas you’ll notice metal pieces at the top of the pump. If you thought that feature was to keep the gas secure while pumping it through the hose, well think again. If you didn’t know these metal strips are actually detachable and for a good reason! For those of you in a rush and are quick to drive away, the metal strip detaches from the gas pump in a safe way to make sure that you don’t damage the pump. Instead, you’re just left with the hose still lodged inside your car for everyone to see while you drive away.
8. Hole in Spaghetti Spoon
Every spaghetti ladle has a hole in the bottom. Most people might think the hole exists because it helps drain out the water after you’re done boiling the noodles. And while that may be true, it actually serves an entirely different reason. The hole is there because it meant to measure an equal amount of spaghetti for one serving. This comes in handy when cooking for a family dinner or when you’re rationing out the noodles. Instead of just throwing a bunch of noodles into a pot and hoping that you’ll have enough, you can use this measuring feature to ensure an equal amount of noodles to sauce ratio.
7. Tire Tread Bumps
Also known as tread wear indicators, it might look like a manufacturing defect. But they are designed to mark the minimum safe tread height of your car’s tire. Check your tires to see if you have enough tread to cruise safely down the road. In the United States, if your tires don’t meet the tread standards or if they look extremely worn down, it could land you in some trouble. A tire’s tread wears away over time so be sure to replace them daily. If your tire treads are worn out, you have less traction to grip on the road and it might be too slippery or hard for you to stop on wet or icy roads.
6. Door Handles
Surely, you must be scratching your head and probably think we all know what door handles are for, they’re for opening doors! Yeah but did you ever wonder why most household door handles are brass or copper? Brass and copper serve a greater purpose than you think. They contain antimicrobial properties, meaning that it’ll disinfect itself. Lab test shows the metals can get rid of 99% germs left behind on the handle within an hour. It can also kill off deadly viruses such as the flu and E.coli. This is kind of cool to know, especially if you’re a neat freak or germaphobe!
5. Beer Bottle Neck
Many people, oversee beer bottles but the beer bottle neck isn’t designed for a sleek look, but it actually serves an important purpose. It was designed this way for people to hold. By holding the beer bottle neck, it eliminates the warmth transferred from your hand to the bottle. Holding a beer bottle at the end can insulate your beer, leaving it flat within a short time. Holding it at the neck ensures that it will stay cold and allows you to enjoy your alcoholic beverage.
4. Hole in Lollipop Stick
When you’ve finished eating your favorite lollipop, you might notice a little square hole at the edge of a lollipop stick. And while it may seem pointless, it’s actually there for a good reason. It’s there so a small amount of candy can melt and seep through the hole. This helps with the little friction between the candy and the stick. It acts as a hook and stays in place, so the lollipop doesn’t fall off when you’re eating it. Some people have argued that the hole is there for a safety feature. Just in case you accidently swallow, the hole allows you to breathe still. While this claim isn’t entirely wrong, it’s still good to know.
3. Utility Blade End
If you own a utility knife, then you know the hassle of having to snap off a used blade. But whether you’re wearing gloves or using pliers to break off an old blade, it can be scary when trying to do because there is a risk of cutting yourself.

First slide back the blades to be safe then you can pop off the end. Make sure you correctly set the edge, so there is only line showing and lock it in. Afterward, you can place the blade into the back of the cap and break it off!
2. Metal Plate inside a Stapler
For most people, stapling papers is something that you don’t have to think twice about. But surprisingly there are two different ways to staple papers that make it much easier to remove a staple instead of just ripping your papers apart. The first way most people are used to stapling papers is with the staples facing in to ensure the papers don’t fall apart. But if you look at the metal plate or anvil of the stapler that contains two sets of holes. Well, you can change the setting of your stapler by turning it around. Then when you staple, it’ll bend the staples outwards, making it easier to pull apart the staples when you want to release your papers!
1. Toothpaste Colored Squares
Many people believe the toothpaste squares at the back of the tube are a colored code to indicate chemical components. Like if it is green, it must be made from all natural ingredients, or if it is black it contains mostly chemicals, and if it is blue, then it has medicinal properties as well as natural ingredients. However, this is untrue. And if you didn’t know what it meant before, these colored marks or eye marks are part of the manufacturing process. It indicates that the packet can either be folded or uncut and is made by the machine at high speed. The colors also help the device to know which part goes up or down which is all part of the packaging system.
15 Strange Things Discovered Inside People
We all like to think that we know our bodies pretty well. Although sometimes they can turn against us, such as when we get appendicitis, or tonsillitis, we generally know what they're capable of. However, horrifyingly enough it's not completely unheard of to discover something strange lurking inside body. It'll make you think twice the next time you have what appears to be an innocent stomachache. We haven't heard of one being found inside of a human body yet.
1. It's not a tumor
When it comes to medical maladies, having a brain tumor is usually as bad as it gets. So you can imagine the distress and panic that rosemary Alvarez felt when her doctors told her that they had spotted a foreign growth at the base of her brain stem. She had gone to the hospital in Phoenix, Arizona due to experiencing balance problems difficulty swallowing, and numbness. Her condition was rapidly. Deteriorating, and she was rushed to surgery to remove the tumor. Neurosurgeon Peter naka she performed the Operation. And was pleased by what he found inside her brain, which is a rare occurrence in his line of work.
The good news is that it wasn't actually a tumor. The bad news is that it was a tapeworm. Yes, while we think of tapeworms as beans that hide out in our intestines, this one took a wrong turn and ended up in Alvarez's brain. It's likely that she acquired it by ingesting Tapeworm eggs when she ate tainted food. You see, when you eat tapeworm larvae it goes right to your intestines. But the eggs can make it into your bloodstream and get lodged in different parts of your body, including your brain. That is now a fun tapeworm fact that you know!
2. Surgical tools
Recovering from surgery is never fun, but 76 year old Daryoush Mazarei seemed to be having a more difficult time than most. After having a shunt installed to drain fluid from his brain at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, he complained about feel excruciating pain. Horrifyingly enough, his doctors ignored his cries of pain, and assured him that it was all in his head for an entire month. He claimed that he felt as if he was these stabbed from the inside, and instead of offering to take a look doctors. Recommended that he get his head checked.
For an entire month he suffered, until he was finally given a CT scan. His Persistence paid off, because doctors were horrified to see a 10 inch metal device that was left inside his abdominal area during his surgery. It's known as a retractor. And it looks like a giant pair of tweezers there used to hold back organs and skin during surgery. And they look like the sort of huge instrument, it would be awfully difficult to lose track of because the hospital wasn't interested in this going to court they settled with Missouri for an undisclosed sum.
3. Pregnant man
When we put on some excess weight sometimes it's easy to come up with excuses. It's just water weight, it's because of hormones and so on. However, Sanju Bhagat is a man who had a legitimate excuse for his swollen stomach. During his childhood in Nagpur, India, he was often mocked for his stomach, which was distended in such a way that he appeared to be pregnant. The twist to this story is that in a way, it kind of was like Bhagat was actually pregnant.
After years of suffering, it finally became too great and he went to the hospital complaining of severe pain and difficulty breathing. Doctors thought that a tumor must be pressing on his diaphragm and decided to operate. What they found inside Bhagat's stomach wasn't a tumor, but was instead a half-formed human being with well-developed hands and feet. Of course, Bhagat didn't actually conceive a child, and this mass of flesh and bones was actually his twin brother. It's an extremely rare medical condition known as fetus in fetu, meaning that a fetus gets trapped inside its twin. There are fewer than 90 known cases of this occurrence. As for bhagat, he's just relieved his ordeal is over and declined to even look at his twin when he was removed.
4. Eating Utensil
We've all heard our parents. Tell us not to inhale our food, but they usually don't mention the risk of inhaling an eating utensil. John Manley began experiencing unpleasant symptoms including fatigue, coughing, and several bouts with pneumonia. After two years of this, doctors at Duke University decided to use a small camera to look into his lung and see if there was anything unusual going on in there.
Well, "unusualW is a good way to describe what doctors found in Manley's lung. They managed to locate a one-inch long piece of plastic with a freighting on it. Once it was removed, they examined it and realized that it was a plastic utensil from a Wendy's fast-food restaurant. Needless to say everyone was pretty baffled by the discovery, including Manley himself. He admits that he likes to take big gulps when he eats and drinks, and assumes that's how the plastic piece got into his lungs.
According to Manley, he didn't notice it at all when he swallowed it, which kind of makes us strangely intrigued to see what he looks like when he eats. Perhaps even more unsettling than the plastic piece, is the fact that one doctor offered to just remove his lung Before they knew what was the matter.
If you thought that only Juggalos were confused as to how magnets work, you should know that some children struggle with the concept also. It's okay, Jason lents was also completely baffled when his daughter Healy needed emergency surgery after swallowing magnets. He claimed his then eight year old daughter is a smart child, and he doesn't understand why she thought that eating magnets was a good idea. And the part that makes us this even more shocking is that she didn't just stop after one or two.
Oh no, little haley managed to swallow 30 magnets, that she claimed "looked like candy." We're not sure what type of candy hailey is used to eating, but no thank you. The magnets were from a toy called magnetics that is manufactured with mega brands. Two days after her magnets swallowing spree, her parents rushed her to the hospital when she experienced stomach pains so server fears she could barely move.
Mega brands defended their product, claiming that eating 30 pieces of any toy would likely result in medical issues, Which is a pretty fair point to be honest. Let's take a little break from this gross-fest, because it's time for our trivia question. Healthcare safety group the joint commission conducted a study between 2005 and 2012, looking at how many surgical instruments are left behind after surgery. In that time span, how many surgical objects were left inside of patients? Keep watching for the answer.
While we may be baffled by the little girl who ate 30 magnets, the case of Margaret Dallman from Rotterdam, holland is even stranger. Inhaling part of a wendy's utensil in an eating frenzy is one thing, but Domon managed to consume a shocking 78 pieces of cutlery. She admits that she had a problem with feeling compelled to eat silverware and she just couldn't stop herself when she would sit down for a meal, she would ignore the food and start swallowing her utensils instead.
Doctors got quite the surprise when they examined her x-ray after she complained of stomach pains. Each spoon and fork had to be painstakingly taken out by a skilled surgeon. Thankfully Dallman didn't swallow any knives although She couldn't explain why she didn't have the urge to. Looking at her x-ray, the massive cutlery sort of resembles a ghost, or a Badminton birdie. After they were removed, Daalman was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder, and has made a full recovery physically, and is making progress in therapy.
7. Eye Parasite
If you wear contact lenses, you might want to reconsider switching to glasses after this. After all, they can be quite fashionable, and they reduce your risk of ending up with a parasite inside your eye. When she was a teen, Jessica Greaney woke up one morning and thought she had somehow contracted an eye infection. Her left eye was swollen and sore, and her eyelid kept drooping. By the end of the week, her symptoms had gotten way worse and her eye was now red and bulging out of its socket.
Greaney described it as looking like a "huge red golf ball," and we can't disagree with her. She was taken to the hospital, where doctors found a parasite living in her eyeball. The parasite is known as Acanthamoeba Castellanii, and it's known for surviving harsh environments. It's thought that the parasite was in some tap water that got splashed onto her contact lens, which was then passed into her eye.
The parasite got to work eating away at her cornea, which meant the doctors had to stop it immediately. For an entire week, Greaney wasn't allowed to sleep, and instead had to administer eyedrops every few minutes. It was absolute torture, however the fact that a parasite was feasting on her eyeball probably would have made sleeping a challenge anyways. Thankfully, she's now fine and hopes to make other people aware of the dangers associated with contact lenses.
Kids are notorious for not listening, especially when their parents try to stop them from eating delicious maggots. However, little Radhika Mandloi from central India had a pretty good excuse, she complained to her parents of an itch in her ear, which her parents initially weren't overly concerned about.When their daughter began bawling non-stop because of her discomfort, they finally relented and took her to the hospital.
Inside her ear, doctors found a blow fly, also known as a green bottle or cluster fly. And if that wasn't horrifying enough, It wasn't alone. It had laid eggs inside of her ear, and was accompanied by approximately 80 maggots. If there was any silver lining to this horrific story, it's that the doctors managed to treat her before the maggots could begin eating away at her brain. Wow so comforting, excuse us while we grab the q-tips.
Blowflies are attracted to bad smells and dirty conditions, And sadly the girl and her family lived in a house that was less than hygiene. It took two Operations and three hours of surgery to get rid of all the maggots, but thankfully she should be just fine.
9. Pea Plant
Massachusetts resident runs badeen had been dealing with lung issues for a month. He found himself constantly Short of breath, and was eventually taken to the hospital because of his symptoms. When doctors found a grainy spot on an x-ray of phidian's lung, he prepared himself for the worst news, fearing that he had lung cancer.
Luckily, it turns out that it wasn't lung cancer at all, but Sveden just had a classic case of pea plant in his love. Yes, Apparently at some point when he was eating peas, one simply went down the wrong way and ended up in his lung. It had actually split and begun to sprout when it was removed. Sounds strange, but the warm and moist conditions in his lung enabled the pea plant to actually grow. Feel free to keep this cautionary tale in minds and next time your parents try to force you to eat your veggies.
Although he had to go through surgery to remove the pea, Sveden was just relieved that it wasn't cancer. He says that his first post-surgery meal at the hospital came with a side of peas, and he fearlessly ate them anyways.
10. Fir Tree
It seems that America and Russia are always in competition with one another. You know how it goes; an American grows a pea plant in his lungs, so a man from Russia Just has to go and grow a per tree in his. This one upping really needs to stop. Artyom Sidorkin had been complaining about chest pains, and had begun to cough up blood. Fearing the worst, doctors confirmed a mass growing in one of his lungs. Nothing about his symptoms or the x-ray looked unusual, so doctors were confident that cancer was the culprit.
When they opened him up to operate, they examined his lung tissue and found something so shocking that the surgeon thought he was hallucinating. It appears that Sidorkin inhaled a seed that had started growing inside of his lung. The tree was just under 2 inches long, But that's frankly two inches longer than we'd like a foreign object in our lungs to be. Thankfully, Sidorkin was able to recover after his surgery.
Surgeons leaving behind instruments in patients is a shockingly common issue. Between 2005 and 2012, a reported 772 foreign instruments were accidentally left behind. Out of those nearly 800 people, 16 of them sadly did not survive their horrifying experience.
A woman in 2012 was enjoying a meal of partially boiled squid, a delicacy in South Korea. While eating she felt a stinging sensation in her mouth and spat out the squid. Despite spitting it out, she continued to have strange sensations in her tongue and cheek. She went to have it examined and was shocked when the doctor extracted 12 small, white spindle - shaped creatures from her mouth. Apparently the sperm sack of the squid had not been removed and had burst when she bit into it, causing the squid to inseminate in her mouth.
An 18 year old girl from Chicago admitted herself to the hospital in 2007 complaining of stomach cramps, vomiting, and weight loss of nearly 40 pounds. Doctors took x-rays of her abdomen where they found a large, dark mass. What they found in surgery was a 10-pound hairball that was over a foot long wedged in her stomach. Apparently the young woman had a habit of chewing on her hair and over the years, it had collected into a ball.
A 22 year old woman in Columbia was brought to the hospital experiencing abdominal pain. While examining the young woman, a nurse thought it was a joke when she saw roots Sprouting from the woman's privates. The girl admitted that her mother had advised her that placing a potato in her vagina was a method of contraception so that she wouldn't get pregnant. The potato had begun to grow after being inside her for two weeks since potatoes thrive in dark and humid environments.
Twenty-six year old Yamini Karanam, a student in Indiana, began having trouble speaking and reading. She was also having trouble eating and was experiencing head pain that radiated throughout her entire body. When she went to the hospital doctors discovered a tumor near the center of her brain. When she went into surgery the doctors were shocked to discover that it was not an ordinary tumor, but a Teratoma. Teratomas or 'monster tumors' are tumors that contain bone, hair, teeth and can even contain limbs and eyes., Once the teratoma was removed, karanam went on to make a full recovery.
In Beijing China, a 16 month old toddler was crying and scratching at her ear for months until her mother noticed something inside. Not able to get it out herself, they went to the doctor.
